I received the Talking Electron Microscope for my son to review. My oldest loves science, it is his favorite subject. So when it arrived, he was totally excited to give it a try. He has a few other microscopes but none that talk, gives a quiz and have pre-loaded images to see. It states that it is for ages 8 and up but even my almost 4 year old liked
looking at spiders, salt, grass and skin up close. There is more than 1 “slide” per specimen too. The pictures are very clear as well. All the specimens are preloaded into the microscope so there is no need to change slides. That makes it nice so you don’t have to keep track of all the slides. The speaking voice that talks about the specimen or asked questions is very clear and concise. The Talking Electron Microscope has 180 images with 600 facts and quiz questions. There are 4 sections: animals, human body (the only questionable slide was the sperm and egg, so you might have to be prepared to talk about that one!), plants and viruses/bacteria.
This was definitely a hit at my house. The Talking Electron Microscope would make a great gift for any budding scientist!
